About us

We are North Sea Container Line or NCL in short. An integrated container logistics company with a large and well-connected network in Europe and Norway. We've been in the business since 1994.

Where're we at

Geography is important when it comes to logistics. Our service area covers Norway and a big part of Europe. We're competitive on price and services within our shipping area on the Norwegian coast, with Tanager in the south and Stokmarknes in the north.

Our main office is in Haugesund, a city known for international shipping and maritime industry, located on the Norwegian coast. An excellent location for reaching the Norwegian coastline from west to the arctic north.

We cooperate with a broad network of agents in Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, and the UK, and serve major European hubs in France, Belgium, and Italy to mention a few.

You can benefit from the most comprehensive feeder service in our sailing area. Our schedule consists of weekly calls in Hamburg and Bremerhaven, and two weekly calls in Rotterdam, transporting overseas containers in a fixed and reliable system.

Our people are your people

17 friendly people work at our main office in Haugesund. We’re small enough to be flexible and agile, yet experienced enough to know the business in and out.

You benefit from our know-how and our close co-operation with companies across the supply chain, like agents, ports, shipowners, cargo companies, insurance providers and container leasing companies. With short lines of communication, we are able to act where others just talk. We want you to get to smart transport solutions in no time.

Our team is highly capable and comfortable with making timely decisions. It’s easy to get in touch with us, and we respond quickly.
